Arabic Keyboard is a typing tool created to help people type in Arabic. Typing in a language which is not English can be tough at times, It’s because most of the Keyboards come with English (US) layout. But you don’t have to worry now, as this tool will allow you to type in Arabic straight from the physical English keyboard you have. Not only that, you don’t even have to install anything to type, you can simply open your browser, open our homepage and begin typing in Arabic.

Why did we create this?

English is one of the popular languages and most of the Keyboard come with English Layout, this makes typing in other languages tough. Although, we plan to create a similar tool for other languages as well. But we’ve selected Arabic first because we think it has more demand and some of our close friends have requested us to make something like this. We’ve created this tool to solve this particular problem.

The need

Make a search query and you’ll find plenty of keyboards which allows you to type in Arabic, but they most of them have intrusive ads, some of them even store the text/message you type, and a lot of them force you to sign up to use their services. By signing up you give them your email which can be used in a lot of ways to market their product or can also be sold to companies which look for it. We believe that typing in a language you like shouldn’t require you to give access to things you might not want to. Hence, the need.

Who would be using this?

This keyboard could be used by different type of users, some of them we think are could be

  1. People who have a job which requires them to type in Arabic.
  2. Someone who wants to communicate with friends/family in Arabic.
  3. Someone who is comfortable using Arabic over English.
  4. People who don’t want to install an app or software for typing in Arabic, preferably the ones who prefer using the online Arabic keyboard.

Does this Arabic Keyboard store what is typed?

No, we don’t store anything you type. However, we are in plans to come up with a Dashboard for users so that they can continue typing the document from other devices, share it for people to review. So, for the time being, we don’t store anything that is typed. We’ll announce it if we upgrade the tool. You can check our Privacy policy for more details.

Does the user have to pay?

No, This Arabic Keyboard is completely free. One doesn’t have to pay anything to type. You don’t pay a single penny to type. However, we may show ads using Google AdSense to people. This is just to buy us Coffee and convert it into code. But if you don’t like them, you can get in touch with us on our feedback page and we’ll work that out as well.

Improve your typing speed using the Arabic keyboard stickers

We all want to save time, why not do it here too? One of the best ways to save time while typing is knowing where the letters are placed on the keyboard. Although our tool shows you the placement on screen, but you’ll be using the physical keys to type. That’s why we conducted a research and found that using the stickers on the keyboard could actually help you memorize where the letter is. Once you know where all the letters and signs are who can stop you from typing fast? To make it easier for you, we’ve made a list of some good Arabic keyboard stickers.
